Central and decentralized authorities influencing the functioning of uniformed services are usually guided by the principles set out in the programs of political parties. All this builds internal relations within the uniformed services and determines their functioning. These issues became the subject of research aimed at identifying obstacles that hinder the performance of tasks in the police formation.

Material and methods:
In order to diagnose this problem, research was carried out by the method of a diagnostic survey with the use of the survey technique among student officers and command staff at the turn of 2020 - 2021. The research tool in the form of a questionnaire was used in the research. 189 people participated in the research, including mainly those participating in extramural and postgraduate studies.

Research has shown that the negative impact on the functioning of the police is primarily the influence of politics, and this impact applies to all dimensions related to the performance of tasks by policemen. Politics affects the promotion system and also the relations between employees. Undoubtedly, the functioning of the police is influenced by the crisis conditions caused by the pandemic and, in particular, by assigning policemen duties related to the control of compliance with the quarantine rules, maintaining appropriate distances and the number of people, or wearing masks (previously helmets) in public places.

The research documents the unfavorable state of management in uniformed services, especially in the police. The influence of politics, and not knowledge based on research and the search for truth, leads to behavior inconsistent with the principles of the social contract and contradicts the rational principles of the organization's functioning.
